Subject: 1954 defense of segregation
Highly recommended, esp. for those not old enough to remember the civil rights struggle. Ga Gov Talmadge gives classic 50's defense of states rights and segregation as the Supreme Court weighs Brown v. Board of Educ. Also a chance to hear the now extinct southern slur "nigra". A nice polite way for segregationists to make their point.

I found this via a link from the Classic TV section, and I think it should be in the Classic TV section instead of "open source videos".

This 15-Minute Kinescoped program is very entertaining, and although the special guest is a talentless jerk who deserved to of been murdered and eaten by the wonderful Prince Vegeta, I still enjoyed watching it.
